Why not plaid? Old Sutherland was always one of my favorites ....

By the way, in the photos the orange rust appears rather garish. It might be the camera. If it isn't, maybe you could tone it down with a mist of brown and perhaps some weathering chalks. -- Russ

I would go with black or dark brown. Might search pics of the real thing to see what was common.

It is the camera lighting in my hobby room is a bit on the bright side. I still have to add filters and washes, I am going to darken the seat so it looks faded.
thanks for the comments
